About Cardless:

Cardless is a fintech startup. Their mission is to make consumer credit more accessible, useful, and engaging, and they do that by partnering with brands to help them launch financial products.

Cardless began with a focus on co-branded credit cards. They've launched cards with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Manchester United, Miami Marlins, and Boston Celtics; with more brands on the way! Their cards are digital-first, consumer-friendly, and tailored to both brands & fans with delightful discounts & rewards.

Cardless is headquartered in San Francisco, but they're building a remote-friendly team across the continental US. They were founded in 2019, and they raised a $40M Series B in 2021. Cardless investors include top VCs like Activant, Accomplice, and Greycroft; founders from successful startups like Plaid, SeatGeek, and FiveStars; and executives from major sports teams like the Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns.


  • Cardless is headquartered in San Francisco, CA, with a beautiful office in the Mission District (near Dolores Park). They welcome employees who want to work from this office; they offer additional benefits to those who do (see below), and relocation assistance to those who'd like to.
  • They’re also hiring remotely across most of the continental US (excluding AK, CO, and HI) for most roles. Cardless works hard to create a first-class, remote-friendly environment, with an additional benefit for remote employees, too (see below).
  • Cardless regularly brings their team together for offsites & trips, about every 2 months, both for fun and for work. They cover all travel & lodging in these cases.
